Easy Healthy Pumpkin Cookies made with oats, nut butter, maple syrup and spices. No bake and kid-friendly for snacking all week long!
- Line a baking sheet or Tupperware with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oat flour, flax, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
- Add almond butter, maple syrup, pumpkin and vanilla extract. If mixture is too thick, add almond milk or water to moisten, 1 tbsp at a time. Mix until smooth.
- Using your hands, form the batter into small balls and place them on the lined tray. Press each ball firmly into a cookie shape and top with chocolate chips. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until firm.
*You can make your own oat flour by grinding old fashioned oats in a blender until they form a fine powder.
**If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can substitute use 1 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon allspice.
